Nanny in Victoria, British Columbia
Hello! My name is Caitlin (she/her) and I am a 19-year-old student currently studying for my undergrad in sciences at UVic (Biology/Psychology Combined Major). In the photo, I am the one on the right and pictured with my brother and my 2 younger cousins. I am friendly, responsible, independent, and love caring for kids and pets. I am looking for a part-time position but am available to go full-time once I finish my semester (around April). I am in Oak Bay near the Uplands golf course. I love spending time outdoors whether that's biking, swimming, walking, or picnics.
My childcare experience started when I took the babysitting course around age 13 and would babysit for friends, family, and people in my neighbourhood from ages 3 and up. I also did multiple summers volunteering at a Montessori summer camp for kids aged 3-6 where we facilitated arts/crafts, snack time, outdoor activities, dress-up, practiced reading, and so much more! Through this experience, I gained lots of knowledge regarding the Montessori approach to development and got to work with a wide range of kids. When I was in high school I took leadership opportunities such as participating in the Peer Counselling program and volunteering weekly for the Big Brothers Program at a local elementary school. More recently I served as a nanny last summer for a family of four kids (aged 3, 5, 7, and 3 months). I have training in First Aid as well as a Foodsafe certification.
I have been surrounded by animals throughout my life so pet responsibilities are not an issue. Any homework, reading practice, swimming supervision etc. I also would love to help with. I understand that it’s an important decision for your family, especially with COVID. I am COVID-conscious and believe that it’s not something to take lightly and to follow the guidelines that are put out by BC health. I have both vaccines and the booster with proof.
I also have my full driver's license with a clean record so I can drive if need be.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and read more about me. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your child/children. Please let me know if you have any questions and feel free to reach out anytime!
